We stay at the Clamdigger when we come to the beach. The food at the restaurant is always good. This morning we had breakfast and asked for several items to be fixed a certain way, everything was perfect. Delicious. Wait staff is friendly and attentive.

The Clam Digger Inn is a hotel on the Bogue Banks of North Carolina. It is an older property and has been in operation for many years. During the winter months, it has special Weekend Getaway packages. My wife and I had the Friday/Saturday nights package. Every room at this hotel has a direct ocean view. Each room has a... More

It's a great deal for the money. Every room has a view of the beach. Service was very good. Staff was friendly. Rooms are old but clean. Only issue is there was a bug on the bed. It was a roach. Yuck! We killed it and notified staff when leaving. I will stay here again even with the small issue.

Have stayed here twice now & the Clam Digger is our favorite. As other said, every room is ocean front with your own balcony. See the sun rise and set from your balcony. Clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and always greet whoever walks through the door. The restaurant is as good as any mid priced seafood restaurant you'll... More

We decided, after hearing good things about the Thanksgiving deal here, to go to the beach for the holiday. The package offered (we chose the one-day but will likely do the three-day in the future) was very inexpensive. We expected out-dated accommodations and average food. What we found were lovely accommodations, delicious food, and a wonderful staff. Although it's windy... More

This unique hotel had all of its rooms facing the ocean. It is also in a very quiet location, several miles from any other commercial areas. Every room has a balcony. We had a nice King bed room on the top floor. The hotel has a spotlight which it shines on the ocean at night. For some reason this attracts... More

This is the perfect place for ocean front, reasonably priced accommodations with restaurant and bar on site. Restaurant food and service very good. All rooms are ocean front with incredible views. Access to beach is an added plus. The staff has been very professional, warm and personable. We enjoyed our stay here of 2 nights. Our room has been clean... More

I came here on a fun overnight trip to the area which I actually grew up in. We wanted to stay in a hotel with an ocean view and private balcony and that's what we got! The Clam Digger is very clean although could use some renovation but for the price it can't be beat. I couldn't find any other... More

We have been staying at the Clam Digger for about 20 plus years on and off. While this is an older place, they do keep up. It is far from fancy but it is our place of choice because. . . . .1. The location is A-1. Every room has a small, PRIVATE, balcony looking at the Atlantic Ocean! How... More
